Solo.

The solo CD reflects my solo work of the past year. As in the years before, I have explored diverse extended techniques on the clarinet and saxophone and intensified my efforts of reconstructing my instruments. As a former student of social anthropology, I am and always have been interested in ethnomusicology. This is why a part of my music deals with (repetitive) figures that are influenced by tribal music. The add ons are either objects from every day life or parts of other instruments, that I use for preparations on clarinet and saxophone. The preparation deforms the clarinet or saxophone sounds as well as the playing techniques and opens up different possibilities for improvisation.
